My one-year-old Dell 2208WFP monitor went dark yesterday. The power button shows it's still turned on, but the screen is dark. After rebooting the PC, the usual startup screens showed okay, but after the password box appeared for about two seconds, everything went dark again. I found that if I turn the monitor off and on again, the screen shows for about two seconds again, but that's all.

Any ideas?

Could be the monitor, but, do check the video card as well. If it has a fan on it, be sure it's spinning freely.
